of it anyways. number one, ayman al zawahiri, the long-time number two to osama bin laden, communicating with an organization that's considered even more danger, nasir al wahsyshi. he's experimented with exploding clothes, clothes impregnanted with explosives, not to hide bombs but clothes that are bombs. but this isn't about an exploding shirt. this is said to be, according to sources that talked to nbc news, something big, that the head of al qaeda ordered to do something at the end of ramadan and that's now. when they talked about that, larry, the u.s. government listened and that's what kicked off the biggest alert since 9/11. >> steve handelsman over the weekend, congressman peter king, very knowledgeable guy, he said they picked up specific dates, specific dates. do we know anything about that? >> reporter: what we're told, larry, is that the conversation, and it may have just been one, it's such big guys and they so avoid communicating and if there was just one conversation it's because of they communicated and because of who they were. and the communication we're told specified t
reach. >> thanks to air force personnel who did their part. osama bin laden is no longer a threat to our country. we put al qaeda on the path to defeat. >> osama bin laden is dead and general motors is alive. >> al qaeda's on a path to defeat and osama bin laden's dead. al qaeda's on the path to defeat and osama bin laden is dead. >> we have eliminated osama bin laden. that was our purpose. >> they ran on that, and they ran on saving detroit. listen to this. >> when my opponents and others were arguing we should let detroit go bankrupt. we made a bet on american workers and the ingenuity of american companies and our auto industry is back on top. >> we refused to throw in the towel and do nothing. we refused to let detroit go bankrupt. three years later, that bet is paying off in a big way. >> dana, detroit is bankrupt and al qaeda seems to have us on the run. your reaction? >> well, sean, i have friends who live in detroit, and they would say that detroit, for all of the promises that this administration made about that city, not a single one of them was delivered. where it concerns al
by osama bin laden when he was leading al qaeda. they weren't always followed and they didn't always trigger this kind of response. >> exactly. richard aeengel, thanks to you. there's been a higher threat level, a lot of extra security there but they're telling you this is unrelated to what is going on in the middle east and in north africa. >> it is, andrea. what we're hearing from former and current military and intelligence officials in pakistan is that although it is a separate incident that they're dealing with in pakistan, it is certainly when you take a step back and look at it parallel in many ways. over the weekend in islamabad the capital city of pakistan was shut down. we are told this was prompted by an intelligence intercept of communications, possibly between two taliban leaders, talking about a potential target attack in islamabad. maybe on a pakistani target though. not necessarily on american or international target. we're told that could have been navy force -- sorry. air force target or a navy installation or even an intelligence office in or around the capital. wh
the night of the osama bin laden raid. the grapevine is coming up next. getting your vegetables every day? when i can. [ bop ] [ male announcer ] could've had a v8. two full servings of vegetables for only 50 delicious calories. >>> some fresh picks from the political grapevine. two years ago, seal team 6 moved into the compound where osama bin laden was hiding. president obama was playing cards. despite the pictures released by the white house of the president and his team in the situation room, former obama body man, reggie love, says the president turned to distraction to make it through tense hours. >> sat around in the private dining room kind of like -- most people were in the situation room. i'm not -- i can't be down there, i can't watch this entire thing. he, myself, and the white house photographer, marvin, we made -- must have played 15 hands, 15 games of spades. >> that was part of an interview love did last month at ucla, hosted by the artists and athletes alliance. the group had posted it online but has since removed it. >>> the new united states ambassador to the united nat
you continuously say that osama bin laden was dead and al qaeda was on the run when in fact now you've closed more embassies than ever before in u.s. history because of terrorism? that's not exactly the question he got last night. >>steve: the extraordinary thing is given all the news these days, the first time we've heard from the president of the united states in a live tv environment asked questions of him was by jay leno. clearly the president, he selected the softball venues because they worked in the past. entertainment tonight, people magazine, got some criticism from the mainstream media but that's only because he wouldn't talk to them. he knew he had to go directly to the low-information voter on shows like this. while president is out banging his campaign for the economy, he went right to jay leno and he painted a picture where things are getting better and my policies, they're working. >> the economy is growing. the unemployment rate has been ticking down. and housing is improving. we've seen the deficit cut in half. health care costs are actually going up slower than the
we have made, getting osama bin laden, putting al qaeda between afghanistan and pakistan back on its heels that this radical, you know, violent extremism is still out there. >> jeremy, is this kind of a tricky line for him to walk, talking about this? of course, reminding everyone that the death of osama bin laden was under his watch but you have closings and evacuations that send a different message. >> that's right. i think jay leno asked the right question when he brought up ben ghazi. i think that looms large now over every decision that has to do with our installations overseas. the last thing that this white house wanted to have to deal with, i'm sure, is another attack on that scale. so, i mean, while al qaeda is definitely on the run, this is a reminder that, you know, while the president is trying to move on to other issues, whether it be housing policy, the environment, what have you, terrorism and the fight of it overseas is still a huge part of his portfolio. >> yeah, he answered a lot of questions. jay leno really playing the part of a reporter yesterday, including askin
the world and does not get terrorized. >> because of you, osama bin laden is no more. because of you, al qaeda's top ranks have been hammered. even as we decimated the al qaeda leadership that attacked us on 9/11, al qaeda affiliates and like minded extremists still threaten our homeland. still threaten our diplomatic facilities. still threaten our businesses abroad. and we've had to take these threats seriously and do all we can to confront them. >> meanwhile, those heavy u.s. drone strikes in yemen continue. according to "the new york times," three strikes this morning have left three people dead. another wednesday killed seven. and a targeted attack on tuesday killed four people, all said to be working for al qaeda. >>> president obama also addressed another critical issue within the arms forces, its alarming rate of sexual assaults. it follows a recent report that as many as 26,000 instances of the crime went unreported last year, a 35% jump from 2010. the pentagon is reviewing records to screen for past instances of alcohol-related offenses, child abuse and unwanted sexual contact.
on the people who actually attacked us on 9/11. today al qaeda is on the run and osama bin laden is dead. >> there are reports, too, the leader who replaced osama bin laden has given two speeches saying the muslim world needs to unite, said he disagrees with the u.s. policy going on in egypt as well. also, this is the 27th day of ramadan, also known as the night of power, the time when moham d mohammed -- if you're a believer, when mohammed got the first versus for the koran. >> the massive prison brakes across the region. >> not everybody believes al qaeda is on the run. >> apparently al qaeda doesn't agree. they strung more than 1,000 people from prisons in various countries. >> last week. >> 1200 prisoners in a single break. >> benghazi. >> how do you do that? >> a massive one at abu ghraib prison in iraq, too. here is the general on the al qaeda threat that we face. >>. >> certainly after 9/11 we clearly had al qaeda on the run because we responded to quickly to that threat and intercepted a lot of other threats and killed a bunch of leaders in the process. they have had time to reg
to coordinate, and if osama bin laden was calling someone in the united states, we n't his stockbroker.hat because people need to know that the government is not going to gary all this information on them and one day in the future use it against them or have it leaked. this is a legitimate issue, and balancing those is not easy, and i think what we're struggling with as a country, how to protect americans and also protect their individual liberties and private expectations. it's not a trivial issue. >> neil: looks like republican are having a hard time reconciling those two extremes to hear senator paul tell it, if we're getting these constant reports out of the nsa that it went beyond just collecting over 115 million american phone records, to the latest news that is was every e-mail, every site folks went on so much information, so fast, they really couldn't even hold it that long because it was too massive to hold. that does raise the kind of concerns that senator paul has had, that chris christie seems to dismiss. >> but first of all, of course, we always need to be reviewing the s
tower rises above the new york skyline and al qaeda's on the path to defeat and osama bin laden is dead. >> let's bring in cnn security analyst peter bergen. peter, you heard the president say last fall that al qaeda was on the path to defeat but now you see this. is this a result of a reorganization of al qaeda? does it appear as though it is still a threat or even more so of a threat than it once was even with the removal of bin laden and several of the lieutenants? >> well, fredericka, al qaeda hasn't attacked the united states since 9/11. since july 7th, 2005.the west - and under the obama administration, almost the entire top leadership is either killed in drone strikes or in the case of bin laden killed in a navy s.e.a.l. raid and the documents recovered from the bin laden compound paint an organization that well under the pressures they were under and thinking of moving from western pakistan where all the drones are concentrated in to a remote area of afghanistan, a web of the al qaeda brand has been tarnished by the actions of al qaeda in iraq, et cetera, et cetera. so that port
responsible for attacks. we did not get osama bin laden by having -- >> let nicole -- 30 seconds. go ahead. >> you know what? he goofed on benghazi. the whole administration has been putting this under the rug. they don't know, their whatever from a hole in the ground and i'm tired of seeing what this administration has done with benghazi. it is insulting. >> noel, leslie, and i got your name right there. still ahead, tonight on this special edition of has nnnity, sean's interview. first, a government watch dog investigation into planned parenthood. i'll explain why the nation's largest abortion provider is being accused of wasting your hard earned tax dollars also. >>> we need your help in pick the video of the day. option one tonight. the hilarious video. you see it. of a drunk dancer and what happens when he is put to the sobriety test. if you want to see his moves, if you want to see his moves, logon and cast your vote. a-a-a. f-f-f-f-f-f-f. lac-lac-lac. he's an actor who's known for his voice. but his accident took that away. thankfully, he's got aflac. they're gonna give him cash to
zawahiri took over from osama bin laden gave the order for a series of attacks and assigned his most effectivivee ivive ivin to do this. the attack was intended to take place on the night of destiny which was on sunday. it is the holiest day of the holy month of ramadan and it is a day that is used -- been used in the past by al qaeda and other militant groups to try to inspire their followers that if they are going to do it during ramadan they may as well do it on the holiest day. the question is, obviously, that attack didn't happen. when do you dial back? do you wait through the end of ramadan which is going to come just in a couple of days? do you continue this level of alert through the holiday which is the feast which follows the months of fasting of ramadan? so i think right now, we are seeing precautionary measures because we don't know when to stop this thing and when does the threat expire? maybe it doesn't. >> richard, thanks so much. >>> i want to bring in democratic congressman adam shift of california, a member of the intelligence committee. sir, good to have you here.
the election. and remember the bin laden raid was one of the biggest moments in this administration's history thus far. >> a hollywood production team making a film called "zero dark thirty" about that obama/osama bin laden raid in which they, well, apparently glorify the president's role. >> access to classified information for a movie that is going to come out three weeks before the reelection? >> incredible. >> it's funny. the right never seems to mind movies or series that attack democrats, like this special on the president in 2008. >> we'll have exclusive information never revealed before about his ties to controversial people and radical groups. >> obama definitely has something to hide. >> many believe it was during these formative college years that his radical beliefs and relationships began. >> we're basically going to be in the throes of a socialist revolution. >> republicans need to spend less time thinking about movies and a little more time on fixing their party. joining me now is victoria di francesco soto and ari melber. thank you both for being here. >> thanks, rev. >> thank
. the second part tells the story of two men from yemen including one who was a driver for osama bin laden. miss potress is still working on the third installment in that trilogy which is about u.s. surveillance of phone calls and e-mails and so on since 9/11. she posted a bit of that one last year on "the new york times" website. >> build social networks for everybody. that turns into the graph then you index all that data to that graph which means you can pull out a community, that that gives you an outline of the life of everybody in the community. and if you carry it over time from 2001 up, you have that ten years worth of their life that you can lay out in a timeline that involves anybody in the country. even senators and house of representatives. all of them. the dangers here are that we fall into something like a totalitarian state like east germany. >> working with top-level sources like that former nsa employee, uncovering government secrets, shooting and producing her films all over the world, laura poitress, the documentarian, she has been busy. she's been doing traveling for he
the u.s. find and kill osama bin laden. the judge cited procedural issues, and ordered a new trial. dr. shakil afridi faced 33 years behind bars for providing money and medical help to islamic militants, allegations he denied. he also ran a vaccination program for the c.i.a. that helped locate bin laden. another major disclosure has emerged from documents leaked by former intelligence analyst edward snowden. the so-called "black budget" details $52 billion in spending this year, for secret u.s. intelligence efforts. "the washington post" reports that, among other things, the national security agency was investigating up to 4,000 reports of possibly security breaches by its own employees, last year. in economic news, the commerce department announced growth last spring was much better than first estimated at an annual rate of 2.5%. the numbers helped wall street overcome worries about syria. the dow jones industrial average gained 16 points to close near 14,841. the nasdaq rose almost 27 points to close at 3,620. those are some of the day's major stories. now, back to judy. >> woodruff:
of osama bin laden and the doctor was burned as a source and his life was put in jeopardy. limits numbers of people could know what internal al-qaeda deliberations are so talk from the sours is risky. >> heather: the month of august usually active for terrorist organizations. 15 years ago this week, twin bombings in kenya, tans -- tanzania claimed lives. next month marks the benghazi attack in libya that killed the ambassador and four americans. is this a reaction to benghazi? >> guest: they are linked. they are clearly a sense in the wider world we have switched from offense to defense in the war on terror. islamists since in this area that they have opportunity. while we haveack our commitment in the broader middle east the threat has not gone down. it wasn't a problem with the former president. it wasn't a problem with our president but had to do with the nature of the ideology and the armaments spreading in the area. >> heather: thank you for joining us. >> gregg: republicans waging a big family nude pitting chris christie against rand paul. our political needers are here and will wei
is alive and osama bin laden is dead and the construction of core al-qaeda and noncore al-qaeda is part of this. the president has taken a more capacious view of islamism and running the whole spectrum like from the muslim brotherhood whom he supported for their bid once upon a time. they are islamist and they are moderate with whom the united states can do business. and all the way over to including what they call and what jay carney calls core al-qaeda that these are radical islamist and theocrates that want to impose the twisted form of this phase on to countries. and the gradient delineations across the spectrum of what it is to be an islamist and mustheocrat gets the administration in role tangles as they try to explain the difference between good, bad, different and inside and outside. what americans know when you close down 19 embassy and withdrawing all american personnel out of the strugem. americans who reasonably ignore or try to ignore what is happening in that part of the world are called to attention. >> let me jump in for a second. i will talk to congressman peter king on
telling the post, there are owned by an arab country and ran the osama bin laden tapes. i would not trust them. cable channels rely on advertisers for upwards of half of their total revenue. the other half coming from monthly fees. so far al jazeera america getting a backlash. ashley: it is interesting whether they can get a foothold are not, dennis. >> those who are looking for a different slant on the news, sure. the question is, how large is -- largest that audience. ashley: they have plenty of money. they will worry about sponsors. >> getting less and less all the time with the oil production. ashley: thank you very much. good point. tracy: a quarter past the hour. time for stocks as we do every 15 minutes. that's it right down to the floor of the new york stock exchange. we have had back-and-forth action and a lot going forward this week. what are you thinking? >> and thinking i can't wait for this week to be overt. >> you can't think that. think something else. >> everyone is going to look forward to the fed minutes, probably the most important item to try and get a handle on exactl
are giving us new information on what happened after the death of osama bin n laden. they say an american military laboratory in afghanistan analyze the dna from his body confirmed his identity. the tests were done soon after he was killed by navy seal teams. the washington post reports that these details according classified information was leaked by edward snowden. the pentagon has denied that more than a year ago that it had any records of these tests in response to a freedom of information request. bin laden was killed and his pakistan hideout in may of 2011. >> we have to breaking news stories sprea. san jose firefighters are battling a 2 alarm house fire on a commodore drive. two people have been treated on the scene for smoke inhalation. >> the other breaking story comes from a note. police there are investigating a double homicide at tearing hills and out the in way. the call came in at 2:30 a.m. this morning. kron4 kronsjackie sissel is in route. align welcome back. just a day after east bay wide strike a fast-food workers. 180 oakland airport food and retail workers are walking
that osama bin laden thought had the best chance of really being powerful and causing a long-term threat. the information is vague. it is from intercepts. although it's not, thank goodness, the meta data from the u.s. because there's no evidence of their being contact with somebody in the u.s. to be captured in that metadata. there's a reference in what's been heard to the enemy, not specific, which leads people to think it's probably the u.s., but could also be western europe. finally, there's some indication that what makes this so scary is that the chatter is going back and forth in part between al qaeda in yemen and core al qaeda which is loosely based still in pakistan, the tribal areas, afghanistan, maybe even the top figure in al qaeda now with bin laden gone, amman zawahiri. this looks scarier than some of the chatter they pick up. >> put this in a perspective over the past ten years, let's say. it used to be we heard of the chatter going on around the clock. we had a discussion yesterday on "meet the press" about the about of al qaeda to still strike, compared to five, six, seve
the global jihad foundation, obviously, shift more when osama bin laden took over and 9/11, but are we seeing now both disciples came together and sort of shared the same ideology? zawahiri, have we seen the shift towards a new approach to globallied had, or are we going to see -- global jihad? are we going to see more of cybersecurity issues, cyber wars that he's going to try and develop in al-qaeda, and now is it going to affect u.s. policy. >> want me? >> do you want to? >> yale, i'll go. we've -- yeah, i'll go. i think the big analytical mistake is to think that's not part of their global designs or doesn't assist them in waging global jihad. case in point in yemen, instituted a political platform under ansar al-sharia. and basically, this was there attempt to say that we can provide governance and basic services to you and that we can start, basically, you know, adopting parts of sort of, you know, the hezbollah or hamas model, we're going to ingrain ourselves in the committee and build up our own sort of governing model. the associated press recently came out with the head of the al-qae
us on 9/11, and now al qaeda is on the run, and osama bin laden is dead. >> i think it is indisputable that the elimination of osama bin laden was a major a couple smith in the effort against al qaeda. clearesident has been that the threat from all kind of qaeda very much still looms. , our action that we take extra ordinarily capable women and men in uniform, the actions that they take in order to demonstratesfight, how serious we take the threat. no one should be under any illusion that the threat does not still exist. we have numerous communications about what we need to do continually as a nation to elvesct our cells -- ours i the terrorists who mean us harm. the fact that we continue to do those things means that the threat is still will -- real, so we need to be vigilant. i do not think it is a fair reading of the efforts we make , to saythose terrorists it is not real. he has not made that distinctive. he has said that they are decimated. leadership, the leadership that attacked the united states on september 11, 2001, has been decimated. the al qaeda core has
years al qaeda core has been greatly diminished, not least because of the elimination of osama bin laden. what is also true is that al qaeda and affiliated organizations represent a continued threat to the united states. >> welcome back to "morning joe." it is 22 past the hour. >> 8:22 a.m. eastern time. >> that's when you're at your best, 8:22. that's where you peak. so nicole, it's so fascinating listening to the obama administration talking about the threat from al qaeda. they are balancing so many of the same things that the bush administration balanced. what's interesting is when they put america on high alert, you don't have everybody in the press going, are they doing this for political reasons. aren't you waiting for the first major newspaper to make that suggestion? i haven't heard it yet. >> it is interesting. i think this is a place where where else do we have representative king and jay carney saying exactly the same thing, singing from exactly the same song sheet. it gives us reinsurance about the truth of something incredibly dire and depressing, the threat of terrorism is
relations point. in fact, osama bin laden, obviously the most famous terrace of our age, went so far as to say that the media war is 90% of waging jihad. he place the emphasis not on battlefield attacks but on the perception that he could foster among his enemies. now, the very fact that meeting has becomthemedia has become son the very back of public opinion has become so incredibly important puts a great power like the united states, especially a great democratic powers like the united states, at a disadvantage. something very interesting comes up when you look at what's changed in guerrilla warfare, and as part of this book we did a database of insurgencies in 1775, which in is included as an appendix. what we found was that the wind weight for insurgents have gone up since 1945. prior to 1945, the insurgents won about 20% of their wars. since 1945, about 40% of their wars. so the win rate has roughly doubled. what accounts for that? i would argue it's the power of public opinion and propaganda, the ability of even relatively weak groups to bring down stronger adversaries are mars
of the criminal trial for osama bin laden's son-in-law. in delaware, my home state, the sequester has meant lengthy employee furloughs at the clerk's office of our bankruptcy court resulting in the postponement of the infrastructure of i.t. infrastructure. the cuts have not been deeper only because that office is already working with 40% fewer staff despite ab increasing case -- an increasing case load. the delaware federal public defender's office has had to furlough its defenders 15 days this year so far, essentially canceling the criminal docket every friday for the rest of this year. every day is another day defendants spend in pretrial incarceration at cost to taxpayers of more than $100 a day. the defender's office has had to sharply curtail expenditures for experts which may be leading to a decrease in the quality of our representation leading to longer prison terms and more avoidable it taxpayer expense. and, frankly, the picture looking forward is still bleaker. next year the federal public defenders' office nationwide are scheduled to take a 23% budget cut. in delaware this means
you believe that osama bin laden head for five years in pakistan without anybody in the military or intelligence knowing about it? >> that i'm going to ask you for ten words. they don't believe it? >> then is just my opinion. i don't think the general knew that. i don't think that the leadership -- i don't think there was a plan for where he was the this was 700 meters from the gates of west point. who knows what 700 meters, but the reality is a three distinct and compound -- it was like a funny house at the end of the street people didn't act the same as everybody else in the neighborhood in the area where people are not naturally trusting. so, somebody facility did something. malae sort of buying into the idea that the ambassador and i were talking it's not official but it can be someone that has relationships with officials was actually providing the health and there is a failure to ask questions that need to be asked and a due diligence. >> if you read president musharraf's book, he talks about [inaudible] and sestak then there were three houses that were al qaeda houses that
. that is no longer the case. osama bin laden is no longer their plotting against the u.s. and our allies. it does not mean there is not a continuing threat posed by al not mean ithat does has not changed in its way of using force. there are other ways to work with the international community to reach objectives. the president took a trip to africa where he highlighted some of the strong relationships the united states has there. this is the work that the president vowed to do when he took office, which is to rebuild some of the relationships that were in tatters when this president entered the oval office. that strengthens the united states on the international scene. it is good for broader national security interests. but it is something that the president and members of his team have to work on something -- have to work on every day. >> more than 100,000 people have been killed. that is effectively like wiping out the entire city of south bend, indiana. how many more people need to die before the u.s. does employ some use of force beyond humanitarian aid? >> what the president does is he is eva
the training camps were. on 9/11 we did not know that. we knew osama bin laden was back, but that was the extent of our knowledge. the way we kept the country safe was get that intelligence and according to the agency itself, the way we did that was by subjecting him -- because he was subjected more than anybody else to enhanced interrogation techniques. this administration does not get it. they do not. obama made a speech here not too long ago to the national defense university in may and basically said ok, now we are returning back to the pre-9/11 days. we are not at war anymore. we are going back to pre-9/11. we will go try to round up the guys when they blow up. we are no longer on a war footing, if you will, in terms of thinking about the state we're in. i think that is dead wrong. it is an absolute total misreading of where we find ourselves today. as i look at that part of the world am a north africa, a good part of the middle east, not just afghanistan, where they launched 9/11 from, but also yemen and the major struggle underway in egypt, the muslim brotherhood
